The Miz sat down with Metro in a “no holds barred” interview to discuss the Royal Rumble, idols, music, his reality television background, the best thing he ever received from a fan and more. When asked who he would choose to face at WrestleMania if it could be anyone, he replied NBA star LeBron James.

“I’m from Cleveland, Ohio. LeBron said he was going to bring an NBA Championship to the Cleveland Cavaliers. Cleveland suck at most sports, but finally we had this basketball savior, and what does he do? Backstabs us and goes to Miami Heat! Miami is where Wrestlemania will be, so I’d like to face him,” he says.

The Miz also revealed that his favorite wrestling stars growing up were Ultimate Warrior and The Rock.

“When I watch his matches now I go ‘oh those were disgusting’, but growing up it had to be Ultimate Warrior,” The Miz says. “I used to put streamers on my arms as a kid, run around with his make-up on me driving my mum nuts. Then in the Attitude era it had to be The Rock.”

The full interview is available here.

    I was so pissed when Lebron left and now a Miz vs Lebron would be funny.

    Well said Myers as people tend to forget that is the way he was booked by VKM, Gorilla etc. I have to honest and say I can never get my head around how people state side (usa) can change their minds so quickly on the people lets be honest they all cheered for at one point in their life, recently example Hardy, Angle etc shows a lack of maturity imo.

    As yes Warrior may not have being the most gifted with in-ring skills but hell half of the current WWE roster suffer the same thing and they have the WWE marks licking their arses making them out to be on the levels of Perfect, Steamboat, Rude and people of that era, when they are not even at the level of bloody Tugboat, Hogan.

    Did Miz really say “my mum”??? That’s not how they talk in Ohio!

  • Bill

    ShowMiz reunion anyone?…… Nah, JeriShow was better!

  • Myers

    I watched Bret, Shawn, Perfect, and Savage matches for great wrestling. I watched the Warrior to see him kick the shit out of whoever in a short amount of time. It’s what made me a fan of him and why I still enjoy watching his matches to this day.

    I hope WWE only sticks to one celebrity match this year.

  • Effmenow

    On behalf of all WWE fans, we don’t want Lebron James at Wrestlemania.

  • chronoxiong

    I think a lot of us loved the Ultimate Warrior when we were kids. But then we grew up and realized how much the Warrior’s matches sucked.
